When veteran sealife author and photographer Rudie Kuiter puts together a book on a group of fish you can be quite assured that he will take the bar and raise up more than a few notches. The first aquarium-relevant book we ever saw from
Kuiter was Seahorses, Pipefishes and their Relatives, a modest sized book that was released about nine years ago. Since that time Rudie has been busy with the shutter button because the new book appears to contain three times the amount of content and images than the previous book: 100 more pages, 1200 color images, all of the known seahorses species and subspecies and a large 8 x 11″ format which will fill your field of vision with all things Syngnathidae like no other book ever has.
Amazon lists this book for $125 but if you are lucky enough to have Dirk’s travelling Reefer’s Store come to a ReefStock near you, you’ll be able to snag a copy for just $75.
